Knee muscle pain - d

Posted , 4 users are following.

14 months ago I injured my left knee playing netball, for the past month my good knee and been driving me mad - the muscles are pulling and is very uncomfortable and very annoying - I just want to be "normal" again. Anyway I told my Pysio and they told me it's because I've been using it more and obviously putting more weigh on it. Any1 else had the same problem? Physio suggested using a tennis ball on my leg as the muscles are tight, helps a little bit as soon as I start to walk it starts again

    Always get an opinion form an orthodox 1st when you injure a joint. You may need x rays or an MRI for an accurate diagnosis and treatment. If not, you can do more and more serious damage. In your case it appears you are continually overdoing it and straining the leg. Rest, ice and plenty of fluids to start with........then see a Dr

    See your doctor and get referred to a specialist.  Much quicker than your physio trying to fix something they "think" is wrong with you.
